An episode of "The Polly Bergen Show", a fornightly variety series broadcast on NBC. This episode features Jack Paar as her guest. Lots of music and some comedy. Commercials intact, which are for Max Factor make-up products and Oasis cigarettes. I am pretty sure this is public domain, but if not, please let me know and I'll have it removed.

This movie is part of the collection: Classic TV

Segments include (not in exact order): Polly Bergen singing songs,
a segment in which Bergen and Jack Paar make fun of mistakes made by radio and television announcers,
Paar and Bergen doing a mock rendition of "Short Shorts", treating the lyrics as poetry,
Paar doing a sketch in which he tries to get three dogs to "sing",
episode finishes with Bergen plugging her album on Columbia Records titled "The Party's Over".

There are three commercials: a filmed ad for Max Factor cream puff with free sample of "Hi-Fi Lipstick", a commercial for Max Factor "Curl Control", and a commercial for "Oasis" brand of menthol cigarettes (with "pure white filter"). There is also a promo for TV series "Club Oasis".
